Who will win the Premier League in 2020-21? The favourites, outsiders, underdogs & latest odds

Liverpool won their first top-flight title in 30 years last season but Manchester City are hoping to make it three crowns in the last four campaigns

It looks set to be another exciting Premier League season as Liverpool look to retain the maiden title they claimed in June.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were virtually unstoppable to that point, winning 28 of their 31 matches when their first league crown for 30 years was confirmed.

Manchester City, though, will be out to make it three Premier League titles in four seasons after finishing 18 points off the pace last term but still 15 above third place.

Editors’ Picks
Who are the favourites to win the Premier League?

Manchester City are 10/11 (1.91) to reclaim the title after somewhat of a down year by their lofty standards last time.

Fresh off winning the domestic treble, Pep Guardiola’s men could only finish with 81 points – some way short of the 198 they had amassed across the previous two campaigns.

The ability and the depth of their squad cannot be matched, even by the reigning champions, and they have seemingly recovered from a poor start to pick up eight wins and five draws from their 15 outings.

Liverpool are 12/5 (3.60) to follow up their first ever Premier League title by making it two in a row to cement their status as one of the best teams in the world.

Klopp’s side broke a host of records last term, including the fewest amount of matches taken to win the title, but the long-term injury of Virgil van Dijk is a huge blow to the champions’ defence.

They started strong and were favourites to win until a run of three games without a win across December and Janaury, with their 11 points from nine away games no doubt a huge concern.

Bruno Fernandes Man Utd

Manchester United have not won the title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in 2013 and they are 6/1 (7.0) to wrestle back the Premier League crown.

It was a season of two halves last time around for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the signing of Bruno Fernandes revitalising the Red Devils, and they recovered from a poor start to sit second with 10 wins and only three losses in their 16 games.

Who are the underdogs to win the Premier League?

Tottenham are 14/1 (15.0) to improve upon their sixth-place finish last season and win a first top-flight title since 1961.

Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November last term and his tally of 45 points was the fourth-most accrued since his hiring, and the Portuguese led Spurs to a 6-1 victory at Old Trafford in October to solidify themselves as potential champions.

Despite being touted as contenders in November, the north Londoners dropped off in December with two losses and two draws to slip off the pace.

Leicester City are 33/1 (34.0) to build on their fifth-place finish last term by winning a second Premier League title, having put aside last season’s implosion to string together an impressive set of results.

No team has won more games than the 10 that the Foxes have managed this season, including a stunning 5-2 victory at Man City which saw Jamie Vardy score a hat-trick.

Chelsea have been incredibly active in the transfer market by bringing in a host of starting players, including Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, and bet365 make them 40/1 (41.0) to win the league.

Frank Lampard impressed in his debut season as Blues manager but consistency issues still plague the Blues, who sit ninth after 17 games thanks to a run of four defeats in six games around Christmas.

Who are the outsiders to win the Premier League?

Everton finished 12th last season but have made a decent start to the 2020-21 season with 29 points from 16 games and are 100/1 (101.0) to win a first league title since 1987.

Marquee signing James Rodriguez has not disappointed since joining from Real Madrid, linking up with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with the tutelage of Carlo Ancelotti having also played a significant part in the Toffees’ good form.

Aston Villa only survived relegation by the skin of their teeth in last term and are 100/1 (101.0) to stun the footballing world with a Premier League title win.

Dean Smith has led his side to some very impressive results so far, including a 7-2 win over champions Liverpool.

Arsenal enjoyed a strong end to the 2019-20 campaign with 16 points from their final nine games but are 150/1 (151.0) to win a first Premier League title in 17 years.

Their season was topped off by winning the FA Cup but this term could scarcely have gone much worse so far, with the Gunners sat in 11th place and Mikel Arteta under serious pressure after losing eight of the first 17 games.

Southampton have been quietly improving in the last three years and are 250/1 (251.0) to claim a first top-flight title, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men only four points off the pace.
